in 1993 the 46-year-old bill clinton took the oath of office for the first time. he became the first baby boomer in the white house and told the country that change is not something to fear. >> when our founders boldly declared america's independence to the world and our purposes to the almighty, they knew that america to endure would have to change. not change for change's sake, but change to preserve america's ideals, life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness. though we march to the music of our time, our mission is timeless. each generation of americans must define what it means to be an american. >> well, bill clinton, who had a history of being long-winded, went on to deliver what aides said was the third shortest inaugural address in american history. we'll be right back. both of us actually. our pharmacist recommended it. and that makes me feel pretty good about it. and then i heard about a study looking at multivitamins and the long term health benefits. and what do you know? they used centrum silver in the study. makes me feel even better, that's what i take. sorry, we take.

was in some ways analogous to when hillary clinton as first lady in beijing when we were there back in the 1990s talked about women's rights being human rights and human rights being women's rights. >> inaugural speeches, there haven't been that many of them, so when you include language like president obama included, it sends a message not just today but going forward. it's the first time the word gay has ever been used in an inaugural address. my guess is it probably won't be the last time, but maybe it will. >> all the way in which he said, look, i support gay people getting married. it's been a sort of remarkable -- i do think it's both a political journey, but also a personal journey for him. >> mike duffy, now the really hard stuff on if there's going to be action on climated change, it's going to be very, very tough, indeed. guns something likely to happen. not everything that they want. the budget, the most immediate problem, tomorrow the house is voting on this extended debt ceiling and this is to avoid a confrontation in the short-term, but the large ers issues remain. >>
things to a point of compromise. we saw that before with newt gingrich and bill clinton. and in clinton's second term, they did actually get stuff done. they worked it out between them. but does the president have that kind of relationship with john boehner, say, where we can feel optimistic that they're going to have a very different kind of relationship but can actually be more effective? >> i think there's a different kind of dynamic that speaker boehner has to deal with. i don't know him personally, but his reputation is that he can get deals done, but then he has to sell them in a caucus, some whom, a minority, but a vocal minority of whom are very rigid indeed. so i think the speaker has an opportunity to show his more magnanimous leadership and to lead the whole of the house, and not just his caucus. and as he does that, i think his relationship, not just with the president, but with the general public will improve, and i hope it does. >> one of the issues he's going to face is gun crime, gun control, gun violence, generally. he's been generally audacious in terms of the proposal
the possibility of tajing on hillary clinton in the 2016 presidential race. a >>> and it sounded beautiful but was it live? controversy over beyonce's rendition of the national anthem. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> and the breaking news continues here in cnn. we're covering the country's latest multiple shooting incident on a college campus. three people, at least two of them were students caught in a cross fire. a fourth person suffered a heart attack during the shooting. it all happened near houston, texas, on the north harris campus of lone star college. that's a community college in texas. cnn's ed lavandera has the latest. ed, what are you hearing? >> reporter: this shooting appears to be a situation that started off as an altercation in one of the buildings between two people. one of those firing shots was wounded and is now in custody. two people were caught in the crossfire and those people were wounded and then there was a fourth person that in all of this may lay had a heart attack. that person is being treated as well. and now the focus is on the second s

with very, very few details coming out from the algerians. secretary clinton was asked about that friday, and on the one hand the u.s. and other countries are very unhappy about the lack of information, but on the other hand they realize it's a very complex operation and that it appears to be continuing. erin? >> jill dougherty, thank you very much. of course, we do know there are some americans still unaccounted for tonight. we are also hearing the first words though from another american hostage who is safe and we want to get straight to our david mattingly in texas who has been following the other american hostages. david, what can you tell us about the american you have spoken to who is alive? >> reporter: erin, first of all, we can tell you his name. that's significant because it's the first time that we've been able to confirm a name of one of the americans who were at the plant at the time. his name is mark cobb. he's reportedly from texas. we weren't able to confirm that directly with him because we had a very brief exchange with him. cnn contacting him via text, and he sent two

department i was upstairs, secretary clinton meeting with the japanese foreign minister and both of them discussing this crisis in algeria. she said that she had spoken yet again with her algerian counterpart and she stressed once again, she said, the upmost concern they have is for the safety and security of the hostages. but when i asked her about the criticism that's being leveled by the united states and other countries against some aspects of this operation, the algerian operation, here is what she said. >> let's not forget, this is an act of terror. the perpetrators are the terrorists. they are the ones who have assaulted this facility, have taken hostage algerians and others from around the world who were going about their daily business. >> so a lot of passion in what the secretary was saying right there. so some hostages have are been killed. some have sur survived and some are telling their stories. >> i don't remember. it happened so fast. it happened so fast. >> so fast? >> my heart goes out to the guys that are still there. it's only work, you know. >> but among the koushts
once -- the court struck down clinton for trying this, and i'm afraid president obama may have this king complex. >> what do you make of what he's saying? 23 executive actions, some you think would be targets for being struck down by a court? >>> there's the completely anti government wing that will make that argument. i guess they made it against president bush 41 when he banned the importation of certain kind of assault weapons and made it against executive order signed by president clinton. presidents have the power to do executive orders. that's a power deferred to the president by congress and the constitution. there are those -- as rand paul says, he wants to nullify. that's code word. >> for what? >> nullification, look when it's been used. it's kind of a state's rights argument that gets used in times of great controversy. but the president is acting by executive power, legally conf conferred on him these executive orders are basically common-sense things, basically geared around sharing information, sharing information to reduce gun violence. >> null if i is a code wor

with unemployment at 7.8%. george w., 5.3. clinton, 5.3. reagan was high at 7.3. and richard nixon was at 4.9. >> brian: putting it in perspective, knowing the challenges were different for each president, john meacham, an historian, wrote the book on jefferson, weighed in with bill o'reilly. >> the most important line and not in the speech, it's the fall in media household income over the last 12 years. without rectifying that, this will be an unmemorable presidency and potentially a significantly -- >> how is he going to do that in three years? how is he gog remedy that, turn that around so that the regular folks start to make more money? it seems to me almost inconceivable. almost impossible with his policies. >> with his policies. but i think we're all to blame here. i really do. i think that a lot of people don't want to heart hard truth. people don't want to pay more tax. they don't want to see these cuts. they don't want to embrace the simpson bowles kind of proposals. these are hard choices. but guess what? you and i didn't run for president. he sought the job. it is now his solemn
and michael waldman, former speech writer for president clinton. good to see both of you. kings, monarchs, all in the eye of the beholder. republicans are angry because this is executive action and some might say look, if you can do a lot of these things through enforcement, why wouldn't you do that first. indeed, that is a part of what he's going to do but there is a point here that some say there's between 300 and 20,000. i don't know why the range is so broad. anyway, of gun laws in this country. isn't this outrage just political? >> part of the issue is that whenever you have a party that's out of power, they are concerned about the abuse of executive power. when you have a democratic president, republicans are upset about it. when you have a republican president, that republican president will tend to use executive action as well to get around congress. so i think that that's natural to some extent that there's going to be that outrage and that it's selective outrage. i will also say, however, that there are few things the president has the discretion to do. for example, look into gun res
because of his support and bill clinton's support for gun control measures, including the assault weapons ban. other democrats began to say the same thing. well, that gave the nra far more power than it deserved. i didn't believe it was true then -- >> well, you have to look at west virginia, and west virginia, kentucky, tennessee, that's where he was finding his problems, right? >> where republicans win anyway. the people who vote for republicans in those states are not going to vote for a democrat. it doesn't matter -- >> okay. i'm not going to argue with you except on these points of electoral ledge votes. it used to be until recently we had arkansas, west virginia was a consistently democratic -- let's look at some of the guys on the far right. fear factor. kentucky senator rand paul, who wants to run for president, is concerned that the president has a king complex. and paul is out there vowing to nullify any executive orders that impede on executive powers, which by the way, has not happened. we used the word nullification. you're talking civil war here. let's watch. >> our founding
clinton and jimmy carter will be here. that's obviously expected. another person who won't be here, mitt romney. that's not a slight, but it's kind of weird, because normally a challenger to a president is serving in some sort of official role in washington. they have a reason to be at the inauguration. mitt romney does not. so he won't be here. >> oh. come back and co anchor with me. >> all right. >> i like hanging with you. >> i like the recruitment. >> don't you guys love brianna? see? >> they don't know.
